To find the right scooter, consider the following:

Purpose: If you're looking for a scooter to commute to work look for models with a good balance between range and performance. A longer battery life is also required. For leisurely rides, focus on comfort and ease of use. If speed and high performance are priorities, look for scooters with powerful motors and higher top speeds like the Max G2.


Weight and Portability: If you need to carry your scooter on public transportation, up stairs, or store it in compact spaces like on trains and buses, look for lightweight and foldable models such as the E2 Pro ,E2 Plus, Max G2 or F2 Pro.

Terrain and Wheel Size: Most electric kick scooters are suited for well-paved roads and urban environments, and standard wheel sizes are adequate for these conditions. If your route includes uneven surfaces or you're planning off-road adventures, look for scooters with larger wheels, suspension systems, or both to ensure a smooth and stable ride.

Other things to consider include the weight limit, speed and your budget.
